Because if you’re pro-choice, it’s clearly because you want to have dozens of abortions. Not, you know, because you care enough about women to want them to have adequate health care and the basic right to bodily integrity. Not because you’d like them to avoid death and physical injury from illegal abortion. Not because having daughters of your own might make issues like abortion and birth control access more real. Not because you’d like to see your daughters and women everywhere have children when they choose to.
Because your daughters are slutty.
The conclusion they want you to get from this is that pro-life Congressmen are insensitive to women and don’t have contact with any.
But I’d draw a different conclusion: Congressmen who are liberal are more likely to have slutty daughters. And therefore, they are more likely to support abortion for selfish, personal reasons.
Another conclusion: If you are pro-life, don’t vote for candidates with daughters.
Another conclusion: If you’re not a complete misogynist asshole, vote pro-choice. I’m glad Debbie so brilliantly illustrated that point.
And yet another conclusion: Debbie also brilliantly illustrates that anti-choice politics are about slut-shaming and punishing women, not about fetuses. Abortion should be illegal because those slutty Congressmen’s daughters should be forced to pay for their consensual sexual behavior by being forced to carry a pregnancy for nine months and go through a painful birth. A child should be a punishment for slutitude, and pregnancy should make women sorry they ever wanted to have sex in the first place. But I’m sure that Debbie, like most anti-choicers, will tell you that she really loves babies — she just wants to see them used as weapons against slutty women.
